  • Price Range for this Tattoo
    Its not rude to ask your tattooer for their rate. It is rude to ask various artists for prices on a design and price hunt. Show that you intent to get tattooed by the artist you want and ask for price once everything else is done.  I always ask how much the tattoo will be, but I do it last. If you hear artists complain, its from people who price hunt and dont really want a tattoo, they just want a deal. Tattoo prices vary, based on so many different factors. Only the artist doing the tattoo can tell you how much a design will be.
  • Price Range for this Tattoo
    You can ask what the tattoo artist's hourly rate is, and how long you should book the appointment for - then run the math (and factor in a tip to leave).

    Price Range for this Tattoo
    Hey I'm planning on getting my first tattoo in about a week or 2 and I was wondering how much money I should be expecting to spend on this tattoo. I am planning on getting it on my upper forearm, and it will only be about 4.5 to 5 inches on my inner forearm

    I'm new and need opinions :D
    Hey So I was wanting to get a Celtic themed Japanese style 1/4 sleeve.  I approached an artist called DVZ for a design, and they created this, free of charge. I have selected the artist in which i am getting it done by and the overall design will be altered probably quite significantly.  I am wanting opinions of the concept, thanks :)
